Mick Brown, the drummer for legendary rocker Ted Nugent, was arrested on DUI charges on Sunday, after he allegedly stole a golf cart in Bangor, Maine.
According to the Los Angeles Times, Brown took the cart from the Bangor waterfront pavilion, where Nugent had performed with Styx and REO Speedwagon, and tried to flee in the vehicle after officers confronted him.
Police reports obtained by the L.A. Times indicate that Brown even shoved one of the officers before they pulled him out of the cart.
As [officers] attempted to stop Brown, he accelerated past them, past a third officer and when a security officer got close enough to stop him, Brown allegedly shoved the officer. At that point two other security officers physically removed Brown from the cart and placed him on the ground. He was arrested. No damage was reported to the cart although two traffic cones were damaged, one still under the cart, significantly so, according to the report.
Brown was charged with operating a vehicle under the influence of alcohol, driving to endanger, theft and assault. He was released on $4,000 bail, according to Rolling Stone.
The DUI charge means more trouble for the Nugent camp, as the front man himself was under investigation by the Secret Service earlier this year. Nugent was under the microscope because of controversial comments he made about President Barack Obama and the Democratic party.
